Noelle is my secret weapon - I love to take credit for her ideas! I recently moved into a new home, and while I was so very excited by the opportunity to create a new surrounding for my family, I was also very intimidated. Lots more space to consider, a new baby... The process pretty quickly became much more stressful than pleasurable. I turned to Noelle and she helped me narrow down my choices, and picked up on what I was feeling as well as seeing. At the risk of sounding corny, she helped me marry some of my ideas (in a very simple way) with what was going on with me, and I absolutely adored working with her. I love, love, love my colors - I only wish I had more rooms to paint!
Noelle, Before working with you, I had little understanding of the influence of color on our home, nor did I understand the nuances within the range of color. I had a limited sense of the possibilities that color held for me, as color was an untapped resource in my life. Taking my knowledge of color to the next level through my work with you allowed me to understand and experience the influence of color on my moods and emotions. Now that we’ve painted our condo, I can clearly see how having the right colors on the wall (and buying from the right line of paints too) opens opportunities to new experiences within my home and my life. For example, since painting our foyer a bright and buoyant color coming home has an entirely different effect on my evenings. I walk through the door and I immediately feel a perky sense of excitement. The darker shade of green in my living room really grounds me and allows me to relax (a much different feeling than the bright yellow we used to have on our wall.) increasing my sense of safety and comfort. The changes in our bedroom have led us to experience a deeper sense of restoration in our sleep as well as an increased sense of creativity in our mornings. These changes have provided both Doug and me an unexpected increase of momentum in our lives outside of our home. Having claimed our home space as our own, we are experiencing a different sense of nourishment; and, this has dramatically impacted our ability to properly represent ourselves in various aspects of our life. Beyond the huge time saving component of having you on our team (seriously it would have taken us months to get those color right on our own) working with you has expedited movement in other areas of our life that we just could not have expected. Thank you so much! We are so lucky to have you in our lives.
I’m more connected with my apartment now. Now it’s not just a shell with my things in it, it’s a place I enjoy.
I was hoping that the right color would help me feel more at home, and help the bedroom have a restful quality while also giving the room a touch of character. By the time Noelle came for our meeting, I had already painted three sample colors that were all wrong, I was a little discouraged because two other designers recommended the neutral sand tones because of everything else going on in the space (great views, a fun turquoise rug and custom curtains). Noelle assessed with openness, creativity, and excitement for seeing my hopes come true! She assessed my life phase, the feeling I wanted to have in the space, and made recommendations on hues while allowing me to also guide the process. We narrowed between Pink tones, Blues and Greens After she noticed my face light up mentioning Green...She found the PERFECT COLOR! I’m resting better than ever, I feel like the richness of the color completely frames my view of the empire state building, and I’m getting more done at my desk than ever! It’s so inspiring to be in a space that feels nurturing and calming.
Noelle helped me feel and choose the colors I wanted instinctively for my own healing. She is a treasure.
I was lucky enough to discover Noelle’s talent for color when I purchased my first home, a 1980s-era cabin-like house on a peaceful lake. Despite the beautiful outside, the inside was sorely in need of updating! I wanted my new home to be calm, soothing, and natural after several years living in a big city and serving in the military. From the very beginning, Noelle instantly grasped where I wanted to go and ran with it. She took my suggestions and improved upon them. She intuitively knew how even a small shade tweak would make all the difference. Every color choice she suggested was thoughtful, descriptive, and spot-on. I was absolutely thrilled with the results, and love living in my new space. I would highly recommend her work. She is creative, dependable, and very talented!
This is the least painful choosing colors has ever been.
